Irish Birthday Traditions?

Answer

Some Irish birthday traditions may seem a bit hurtful to those in other parts of the world, but they are just a fun tradition to the Irish. One such tradition is holding a child upside down and bumping her or him on the floor one time for each year and then once more for luck. Another tradition is to give a 21 year old the key to a house. This is symbol of them reaching adulthood.
